Crytek, the game studio most known for its extraordinarily expansive Crysis series, said recently that it might be interested in developing a PS3 exclusive game.
At last month's E3, Crytek announced the game Codename: Kingdoms will be exclusive to the Xbox 360. However, the company's most noteworthy game, Crysis 2, will be coming out multi-platform on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
The developers have revealed that they are really platform agnostic, unlike so many other companies out there these days.
"We are an independent studio so we can (a) Do whatever we want and (b) Have the freedom to announce something else next week if we want to," said Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli.
In this generation, most game development companies either side with one specific console manufacturer (and usually broke some kind of exclusivity deal that is mutually beneficial), or they make every game for mutliple platforms. This has left most of the exclusive titles coming from games made by first-party Sony/Nintendo/Microsoft studios, or from studios that receive financial incentives from said companies.
It's refreshing to see a development company that is going back to the old days of creating the right games for the right platforms.
"Sony is a partner that we would definitely love to work with. A PS3 exclusive is something we considered before - we talked about it a lot, but for reasons of portfolio or timing in the past it didn't work out. But that doesn't mean in the future it wouldn't work," added Yerli.
